    Which months of the year are better to get married at Sandals resorts in Jamaica? I have heard that June there are tons of weddings all day everyday. I am looking for a month that there wouldnt be tons of weddings happening the same day. Any ideas?

      I've heard that with a lot of the all inclusives there are always tons of weddings all day everyday. If you consider that June is actually off-season in Jamaica, I would think that the winter months (non-hurricaine season) would be even worse. If you want a more intimate experience perhaps you could look at some of the samller resorts and then go to Sandals for you honeymoon. I was looking at Sandals at first but whole multiple weddings on one day made me choose Moon Dance Cliffs. It is still an all inclusive but on a much smaller scale. AND they only do one wedding per day. I'm sure there are some other choices similar to this as well. Hope this helps!

        I chose May to be married at Sandals, since it is right after "peak" season ends in mid-April (and rates and number of crowds get lower) and right before hurricane season hits in June! Now, May isn't a perfect month (it is one of two "rainy seasons" they experience in the course of a year), but from the statistics I've seen, the rain is usually limited to briefly passing showers in late afternoon (4 pm is the time most likely for rain).

        And, if you have your heart set on Sandals, at least you can be sure that no one is getting married at the exact same time on the resort as you are -- they only allow one wedding per hour, despite location. Just as long as my guests and I aren't rushed doing anything because another bride is waiting in line, we should be fine! Otherwise, a bridezilla will emerge, and they will just have to wait!

        But, Moon Dance Cliffs is a beautiful resort, and you should definitely check it out if you're certain you want no one else married the same day.....GOOD LUCK!

          If you have your heart set on getting married in Jamaica there are a few places that only do one wedding per day. The Iberostar where I am getting married does only one wedding and they have three side-by-side properties. If I remember correctly there was at least one other resort that has this policy, I'm think it may have been the Gran Bahia in Runaway Bay.

          Good luck in finding the perfect location!!!

            Typically the slowest times of the year for Sandals weddings is in the fall and first two weeks of December!

            Of course the fall is prime hurricane season but typically hurricane season is declared over December first! The first two weeks of December are also usually less expensive to travel!

            Let me know if you need any other assistance!

                I was married in May and saw only other 2 weddings the whole 8 days I was there and I saw one being set up but I knew it was another BDW bride so I wanted to sneak a peak..lol The resort is large enough that unless you are looking for a wedding, you prolly will not even know one is going on. My wedding was a whirlwind and went very fast but I did not feel rushed.
